Gritty might end up on the naughty list this year.

The Philadelphia Flyers mascot took down some skating Santa goalies, then threw a wreath at them during an intermission at the game between the Flyers and the Detroit Red Wings at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Gritty was in the holiday spirit, clad in his finest Santa suit, but quickly turned sour upon watching the other Santas take off. He bashed one's head with a wreath, before heaving the wreath at the second, forcing him to wipe out.

The triumphant mascot then booted the other Santas off the ice, reigning as the one true St. Nick in Philadelphia.
